Virgin Media customers can now watch Sky Movies on their Android devices, thanks to an update to the Sky Movies app.

Virgin Media customers on iOS have been able to watch Sky Movies on their mobiles and tablets for three months now, so Android is a little late to the party. Virgin Media customers still can't get Sky Sports on their Android mobiles and tablets, however.

The Sky Movies app brings favourites like 'Frozen', 'The Lego Movie' and 'Captain America' The Winter Solider'. Indeed, Sky has quite a festive film line-up in store.

The app doesn't work with Android 5.0 Lollipop yet, so bad luck if you've already upgraded. Virgin Media says this will be fixed soon.

To watch using the app, you'll need an M Virgin Media TV package or above.

Virgin Media has also added six new channels to its TV Anywhere service. These are: 4Music, CBS Action, CBS Drama, Extreme Sports, The Horror Channel and Sony SAB.

It brings the total of channels on TV Anywhere up to 119, all watchable via Android and iOS devices and computers.

Shows like 'Dexter', 'Star Trek: Enterprise' and 'CSI' all come as part of the package.
